The Long Sixties is a concise and engaging treatment of the major political, social, and cultural developments of this tumultuous period.
  • A comprehensive yet concise overview that offers coverage of a variety of topics, from the beginnings of the Cold War shortly after World War II, through the civil rights, women’s, and Chicano civil rights movements, to Watergate, an event that transpired in 1974 but capped the “Long Sixties.”
  • A detached and unprejudiced look at this turbulent decade, that is both lively andrevelatory
  • Timelines are included to help students understand how particular episodes transpired in quick succession, and how topics intertwined and overlapped
  • Nicely complemented by Brian Ward’s The 1960s: A Documentary Reader (Wiley-Blackwell, 2009), The Long Sixties book matches the documentary reader chapter-by-chapter in theme and periodization
